good morning. welcome to breakfast study of elution in soil and dust in with naga munchetty flats. an estate, the ——in a and charlie stayt. our headlines today: theresa may promises to resign as prime minister if her own party backs her brexit deal, but her key allies, the dup, still oppose it. statement, the government said: a new study has now been ordered, and more health screening. what we can't agree to is something that threatens the union, which has a strategic risk to the union, for us a strategic risk to the union, for us in the democratic unionist party the union will always come first. parliament rejects all eight plans put forward as alternatives to the prime minister's deal. but what does all of that mean for oui’ but what does all of that mean for our financial services? it is one of the headlines in the media oui’ our financial services? it is one of our biggest exports from this across the world. country, employing more than 2 million people stop so i'm on the nextjob earlier, theresa may promised to step down as prime minister if her deal is passed. but key allies refuse to back her. now it's time to look at the stories that are making the headlines in the media
across the world. we begin with the guardian. we can see here it simply says, no — eight times! all of the brexit options and alternatives were rejected by parliament. staying with brexit and the front of the metro. "vote brexit and i'll exit," theresa may's promise to leave, once the deal is passed. and now on to the times, it focuses on car production in britain which has plummeted to a 6—year low after a 15% fall in the number of vehicles being made. moving now to india and the business standard. india has joined an elite club and become the fourth country to successfully test an anti—satellite weapon, allowing for attacks on enemy satellites. and finally our own bbc sport website, and the latest on the new "urban" sports to be included in the 2024 paris olympics.
skateboarding, and even brea kdancing! mark davis joins mark davisjoins us, mark davis joins us, back from cow button. it has been quite a programme. i hope i will not get the same grilling tim got. no. parliament finally has its say. no, no, no, no, no, no. what is the guardian's take? well, we are at sixes and sevens. i think that is probably the take most of the country would have. they cannot agree what should happen. they know what they don't want to happen. we have known for a long time that there is no majority in parliament for anything other than against no deal. the thing is, even the proposition that was put yesterday about in the event of no deal looming, should be revoked article 50, even that was greeted with a no.
interestingly, the labour party decided not to whip in favour of that motion, and given that it is a ma nifesto that motion, and given that it is a manifesto commitment of theirs, that is quite interesting. the guardian, unlike every other paper, i think the best headline today is actually from the express. it says, what more does she have to do? the prime minister is the person who has put a compromise on the table right from the word go. she continues to be opposed by people on all sides for com pletely opposed by people on all sides for completely conflicting reasons. so within her own party, 55 mps still oppose her. on one side you have dominic grieve and justine greening, who believe that we ought to be revoking article 50 or at least having a second referendum. they don't want to leave the eu if they could possibly have it that way. on the other side, you have steve baker, who made an impassioned speech yesterday in front of the eag, for which he was given a standing ovation... -- erg. that is
the european research group? yes, and he is the chief no deal person out there now that jacob rees—mogg has changed his position. steve baker is now in the same camp as dominic grieve. jacob rees—mogg appears to have outsourced his view to the dup. he says he will do whatever the dup does, which is a very curious position. under problem for the prime minister. this is what the guardian is talking about. although it has no eight times as it had mine, it focuses a lot on theresa may saying she is willing to go with her deal is voted through parliament, which she believes is the best deal for great britain, parliament, which she believes is the best dealfor great britain, et cetera. we have heard her say it many times. it does highlight the guardian and everybody else, the dup has thrown the prime minister's chance of getting her deal through parliament into doubt, because they are saying, we still don't like the steel, actually. no matter who is in charge of the conservative party, no matter who is pm, they do not want this deal. that's right. this is how
the metro have taken it, vote brexit and i'll exit. her putting that on the table. i think it is absolutely extraordinary but that was enough for some conservative mps. .. mike borisjohnson, for some conservative mps. .. mike boris johnson, perhaps, for some conservative mps. .. mike borisjohnson, perhaps, even. for some conservative mps. .. mike boris johnson, perhaps, even. yes, well, borisjohnson changed his position immediately when she announced that. that is absolutely transparent. i think it will have gone down terribly. transparent... notjust within gone down terribly. transparent... not just within the gone down terribly. transparent... notjust within the country, but within the conservative party. this is about his leadership ambitions. not about what is good for the country. i don't think that fact is lost on anybody, even his biggest supporters must realise that is what is driving him here. i don't think it isa is driving him here. i don't think it is a good look. do you think that in the thinking of the likes of borisjohnson in the thinking of the likes of boris johnson and some in the thinking of the likes of borisjohnson and some others, they might be thinking about something that michael gove said sometime ago, which is, ok, let's to this withdrawal deal, this isjust a withdrawal deal, this isjust a withdrawal deal, this isjust a
withdrawal deal, this is not how life will be for the uk once it actually leaves the european union. this is just about this temporarily one or two year scenario. and then, once we get beyond this point, we have a leadership change within the conservative party, and actually then we can break free from europe in the way we want to. possibly. do you see what i mean? they are playing the long game. they sort of eye, and they are talking about how theresa may is not a good negotiator. the factors theresa may has not been negotiating this on her own. this been a team of people. you can question moments... somewhat argue she has been very solitary, she has not been a team player, which is one of the issues in the conservative party. there hasn't been that groupthink at all, it is about how she thinks this is where they should go. i see what you mean and yes, that is a charge put against her, and it is not clear from outside when she is being advised and when she is not taking advice, or when she is being advised badly. this is stuff that will all come out in the wash. interestingly,
looking at it from a historical perspective, if she does get the deal through in the end, and it is still a big if, deal through in the end, and it is stilla big if, i deal through in the end, and it is still a big if, istill think it deal through in the end, and it is still a big if, i still think it is the most likely outcome, but if she does my own view is that history will look kindly on theresa may then it will on boris johnson. well, we will talk about that in years to come. we will find out. business standard in india. india blasting its way into the space superpower club. this was the big announcement from the engine no default —— from narendra modi. it is interesting, it goes to show that the world goes on while we talk about brexit for months and years on end. the rest of the world is continuing to function. india are very proud of the fact they have become the fourth superpower to shoot down a satellite. for me, this is quite interesting. space has suddenly become a topic of conversation again. the americans talking about putting the first woman on the
moon. . . putting the first woman on the moon... if she can get a suit, goodness me. and the problem with the suits yesterday, yes. this is something that first began in 1957. it isa something that first began in 1957. it is a very, very long and drawn out story. it just it is a very, very long and drawn out story. itjust happens that india are the latest to do it and thatis india are the latest to do it and that is why it has hit the papers. they are very proud of it. olympic games, brea kdancing use they are very proud of it. olympic games, breakdancing use a step closer to paris 2024 inclusion. some people are saying it is just about viewers tuning in on sponsorship and money. you are involved in this, rowing is your sport? it is largely about money. but it is about the cost of putting something on. if you think about rowing, that needs a 2000 metre stretch of water, and either you have to build a rowing because all you have to have a decent leg. we need the terms. well, no, because that is tidal. you cannot run six lanes across the thames river. to build a rowing course it cost you 50 —— £50
million. if we wanted to put on a breakdancing million. if we wanted to put on a brea kdancing event in million. if we wanted to put on a breakdancing event in the studio in the next hour we could do it, you don't need anything. so firstly it is the cost of putting on the olympics, secondly it is the cost of getting involved in the sport in the first place in order to make the olympics truly global and include every country in the world, even those who do not have great sporting facilities. is it about attracting a younger audience? they to talk about the age group but i think it is more about accessibility and cost of doing the sport. maybe that ties in with age groups because maybe the younger generation has less money to get involved in the first place. but ultimately the ioc is interested in the cost of the olympics and the number of dates you can get involved. mark, thank you. good to have you on the programme. if you want to look at all the comments, and there are lots, it is hashtag #bbcthebriefing. have a good day and i will see you soon.
quiet on the weather front under the weather remains settled for the rest of the week, but that doesn't necessarily mean the skies are clear. this picture is from yesterday. cloudy in the south—east and it quite chilly as well. on the other side of the country in st ives, it was beautiful. this guy could almost be in the caribbean, sunny weather in cornwall. this is the satellite picture. the weather front is heading our way towards the north—west. high pressure not just across the uk but across france and into parts of spain and portugal as well, many parts of western europe at the moment are in a spell of settled and dry weather. that is certainly the case across the uk through the course of the night and into early thursday. in the south, under the clear skies, temperatures will dip down close to freezing, for example cardiff will barely be above freezing. that means that under the clear skies we could see mist and fog with those dipping temperatures, particularly across the south—west of the country. only patchy fog here and there, but that can still be dangerous, so take it steady if you're travelling early in the morning.
elsewhere across the uk it will start off sunny and crisp, but clouds are expected to build. maybe turning quite cloudy in some areas across the south—east. temperatures will still get up to about 16 in london, 14 in newcastle, 15 in aberdeen. in stornoway, where we have winds off the atlantic, more cloud and maybe some spots of rain, only 10 or 11. friday's weather forecast, again, weather fronts just brushing the north—west of scotland, bringing outbreaks of rain, some for the northern isles too. the vast majority of the country should at the very least have a bright day. most temperatures a degree higher — 17 in london, possibly as far north as hull. pleasantly warm for many of us come friday. friday into saturday, there is a change on the way. this weather front will be moving across the uk, and remember, fronts separate milder warm air from cold air that comes in from the north. the winds switch direction into scotland and also northern ireland. that means cold air out of the north arrives here. temperatures will drop and we could be talking only single figures across much of scotland and northern ireland, possibly even one or two wintry showers in the north. in the south, not quite so chilly. 14 degrees expected in london.
come sunday, the cold front will have moved through, in fact, reaching the english channel. that means we are all in the fresh air. high pressure also over us, that means drier weather, chillier weather, temperatures on sunday only around 12 degrees. after rising at the end of the week they're going down for the weekend. bye— bye.
